Ann Gaffigan

Ann Gaffigan is the Chief Technology Officer of National Land Realty, the fastest growing land brokerage in the country. Gaffigan attended the University of Nebraska, where she was the captain of the cross country and track and field teams as a senior. She was an All-American in the 3000m steeplechase and went on to win the 2004 Olympic Trials in the event and set a then-American Record. She graduated in 2004 with a BS in computer science. After a short stint with full-time employment, Gaffigan started her own company, Gazelle Incorporated, and spent the next 12 years serving clients mostly in the Midwest, many of which were non-profits related to high school sports, marrying her passion for sports with her skills as a developer. In 2014, Gaffigan became a partner with one of her longterm clients, Land Pros Realty, a land real estate brokerage serving the Midwest. In 2016, Land Pros Realty merged with National Land Realty, headquartered in South Carolina. Gaffigan transitioned away from Gazelle Incorporated to become full-time CTO and partner at National Land Realty. She volunteers locally with WIN for KC, which empowers girls and women through sports, and teaches a group of Olathe North high school girls about coding and computational thinking. She is also the Secretary of the USA Track & Field Athletes Advisory Committee.
